FAQs?

What is the substitute for canned chicken peas?

Instead of canned chicken peas, you can use home-boiled chickpeas. First, they are dipped in water overnight, then boiled and dried. Use it in the recipe and it will be worth it.

What is the storage time for leftovers?

You can only keep the leftovers for 3 days in the refrigerator. Get rid of it after 3 days as these will not be edible and will be spoiled.
